Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has honored the memory of the Iranian diplomats killed by Taliban militants in the Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif 17 years ago, saying that the Islamic Republic has been the victim of terrorism from the very beginning.

“The Mazar-i-Sharif incident serves as another evidence that the Iranian nation and officials have always been the victims of terrorism,” Rouhani said in a meeting with the diplomats’ families in the Iranian capital city of Tehran on Tuesday.

Apart from Mazar-i-Sharif, the Iranian embassies and diplomats have also been targeted by terrorists in other parts of the world, he said, adding, “this shows that the Islamic Republic is an anti-terror government and also proves wrong the claim by some countries that Tehran supports terrorism.”
